Group turns upbeat songs into sad ones, vice-versa

Mar 29, 2014, 10:53 PM | Updated: 10:53 pm

Ever wondered what some of your favorite songs would sound like if you completely changed the musical backing or sang them in a different key?

A co-ed group called Schmoyoho has done just that, and the end results are dramatically different, as seen in a three-minute video posted to YouTube.

The group gives contemporary songs from Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry and John Legend a complete makeover, but their versions sound just as legitimate and genuine. If those artists ring much of a bell, perhaps you’ll like their interpretation of Aerosmith’s “Dream On,” which makes the ballad sound happier than you’d ever imagine it to be.

They finish off by taking down the tempo of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind,” and they make Imagine Dragons’ hit “Radioactive” not sound quite so serious.

Take a look/listen below.
